PNGOC completes Day One of Olympic Week

The PNG Olympic Committee (PNGOC) ended its first day of activities for the Olympic Week with the first school visits in Port Moresby today.

The first visit was to the Badihagwa Technical Secondary School and the second to the Lahara Birdwing Primary School.

Students from both schools were taken through different activities, a quiz on the Olympic Movement and also given educational awareness on the Olympic Values and the importance of sports and education, and the lessons that can be learned from it.

The students also had the opportunity to hear from PNG men's Hockey team captain, Milton Kisapai, PNG Powerlifting world record holder, Linda Pulsan and former PNG Barramundis captain, Chris Amini who shared their experiences and encouragement with the students.

Olympic Week will be held in Port Moresby from June 20 to 26 as part of the worldwide Olympic Day celebrations.
